Elon Musk says he will make an alternative phone if Apple, Google ban Twitter.

Hits: 17

 

On Friday, Twitter owner Elon Musk, who also is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, said that if Twitter is removed from app stores owned by Apple and Google, whose phones only use those systems, he would create an alternative phone.

Liz Wheeler wrote, “If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”

Musk replied, “I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone.”

On Friday, Taylor Lorenz used her latest column in the Washington Post to call for Apple and Google app stores to pull Twitter from their stores. This came after Musk announced that there will be a general amnesty for all banned accounts, following a poll of Twitter users..

Lorenz complains that Musk brought back conservative Christian satire site The Babylon Bee, who was banned by noting that Rachel Levine is a biological male. After Time Magazine awarded Levine “woman of the year,” The Babylon Bee awarded Levine “man of the year.”

On November 18, Musk noted how Apple and Google through their vertical integration have a duopoly on the market and wrote, “App store fees are obviously too high due to the iOS/Android duopoly. It is a hidden 30 percent tax on the Internet.”

Musk followed up and tagged the antitrust division in the Department of Justice.

What say you? Is Parler playing both sides of the fence?

Hits: 39

What say you? Is Parler playing both sides of the fence?  At first glance you read this and say that Parler has given in to the MSM. Posts that are labeled “hate” by Parler’s new artificial intelligence moderation system won’t be visible on iPhones or iPads.

There’s a different standard for people who look at Parler on other smartphones or on the Web: They will be able to see posts marked as “hate,” which includes racial slurs, by clicking through to see them.

In a nutshell Parler is being more strict with those who use Apple products. At first that bothered me. But the more that I look at this, I see why they’re playing the game. Bring in everyone and let the audience decide for themselves if this is what they want.

Trump to go it alone? Start his own social media? That would be something.

Hits: 71

Trump to go it alone? Start his own social media? That would be something. The President said he was considering building his own social media platform. We have this from PC Magazine.

Which “other sites” the outgoing President might be planning to partner with wasn’t mentioned in his statement. But the Trump-friendly social media app Parler is already facing trouble. On the same day, Google said it pulled Parler from the Google Play Store over concerns its pro-Trump users have been making calls for violence. “In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app’s listings from the Play Store until it addresses these issues,” the company said in a statement.

In addition, Apple is reportedly threatening to pull Parler from the iOS App Store unless the app enforces stronger content moderation policies. Parler did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but its CEO has been arguing against Apple’s demands.

What say you?
